The light and power plants were damaged and practically every electric light and telephone wire in the city is down. The city is in darkness except for the light from candles and lanterns. The rescue work is handicapped on account of the darkness and it will not be known definitely before daylight what the death toll is. The property damage will total more than a million dollars. The cyclone was general in this part of the state. It swept on through here toward Richmond, leveling houses and buildings and killing three persons near Richmond. It is feared many per- sons living on farms to the east as well as to the west of here have perished. The eyejone did not last more than five minutes here. A large, whirling, funnel-shapecloud was seen coming from the west with terrific velocity. It seemed to strike the city a minute after it was sighted by persons who happened to be in the streets, it reached down into the city and caught it with a twisting, wrecking, death grip. It ripped buildings wide open, catching the inmates before they had a chance to get away. Thomas Hanika, an Indianapolis newspayer man, was seated in an au- tomobile in front of the Bundy Hotel when he caught sight of the funnel- shaped cloud. He said it came with such a deafen- ing roar and so rapidly that he and his wife and two Miildren barely had time to jump ,trom the car and leap into an excavation for a business building.

Three persons were killed, more than fifty others injured seriously and ,:property damage done which, it is believed, will approximate more than half a million dollars in a tornado which visited Hyde Park. Mt. Lookout, Delta, Red Bank and other Eastern Cincinnati suburbs. Fires, caused by gas explosions, followed in more than a dozen houses, compelling the eftorts of the- - fire department to be distributed over as many places. Half a dozen of those buildings were damaged badly by fire alone. The light of morning will reveal, it is be lieved, a scene of wreckage and debris comparable at least to that which was in the wake of the tornado whicr swept Cincinnati July 7, 1915, in which 38 lives were lost. Bodies of the victims were taken from their respective dwellings in which the rushing tornado caught them unawares. Hundreds of persons caught in the path of the storm, which appeared to center in Hyde Park and Mt. Lookout, suffered minor injuries and fright, and others escaped through the vagaries of fate and the winds. Darkness covered the entire section until almost midnight. Twisted tree trunks and telegraph poles, stray porches and house roots obstructed the streets. Traffic east of St. John Park was impossible until early morning. Street and interurban cars were left dead on their tracks when the storm severed the electric telephone Disconnected feed wires. and telegraph lines delayed notifica- tion to police and firemen half an hour. When relief finally commenced to arrive the workers amid the ruins toiled by the light of camp fires, built at intersections along the streets by residents of the neighborhood. According to stories of persons who claimed to have heard first the approach of the wind, the tornado arrived with a roar comparable to that oi a dozen express trains. Many persons were caught at supper. Others on their way to churches and the theaters when the storm came. Chief of Police Copelan and Fire Chief Barney Houston accompanied their men to the scene and directed the work of rescue and relief. Chief Houston estimated the property damage to be more than $500,000. Few Pinkham's Vegetable Compound will make them well?

At all times of the day, too, she could be heard singing about the house. This wayward blitheness of spirit was something more than a puzzle to father, who found her little in the situation immediately confronting him to cause him any undue lightness of heart. For that situation had unexpectedly taken on the form of a defeat. After all Jules Legar's campaign for the possession of that pregnant scrap of parchment which carried the key to the secret of the loBt treasure of Windward island, the document had suddenly disappeared from the Golden vault. And all evidence pointed to the fact that it was the Laughing Mask who had stolen the chart and cipher code from the safe.

For she felt sure that one of the faces in that car was the face of Jules L?gar himself.

She leaped boldly through the hedge and ran to the outermost lip of the Palisades. There, cupping her hands to her lips, she called out a single name again and again.

There was a wild scramble up the quick encounters nnd combats, blows and counterblows, th impact of ash night-stick- s on resounding skulls, the capitulating cry of captives. But Legar fought, backed close against the rock, with the ferocity of a wildcat holding off every attack and with his flailing iron claw sweeping back every assailant Then, swing-riabout, he leaped up the springing from rock to rock with the agility of a mountain goat. At the top of the cliff, when Enoch Golden himself, side by side with the police captain, attempted to bar that flight, the fugitive bowled over those two rotund figures and bolted northward along the topmost ridge of the cliff, heading for the timber not more than a hundred yards away. But by this time two of the officers, recovering their wind and burning with the indignities to which they had been subjected, had caught sight of the fugitive and started in pursuit. They ran well, and they ran determinedly. Legar, realizing that they were gaining on him nd further realizing that he could t keep up his gait for long, veered .suddenly toward the river, where a tool shed stood at the extreme end of a rock-cu- t along the cliff-toThrough the doorway of this shed he darted, with his two pursuers, now joined by a third officer, not a hundred yards behind him. Running to the far end of the shack, he sent his wooden arm crashing through the window, leaped to the sill, and stared out.

"Father keeps a navy revolver in the coin drawer of the vault here," whispered Margery as the man in the mask pushed her more deeply into the shadow of the protecting door. At the moment that the Laughing Mask swung about and tugged open the coin drawer Wilson and a round-eyefootman, having heard the sound of the shot and having previously failed to get any answer to the telephone, came running to the library door. But before they could open that door Legar, realizing that hi9 time was short, had taken matters into his own The Octopus Bomb. hands. Charging bodily against the Margery faced the supreme dilemma still vault door, he swung it of her life. shut upon the Laughing Mask and The girl walked slowly to the still Margery before they had time to open window and gazed out, but the realize his intent. Then Legar threw road-builders' crossed the room to the vault and swung to the heavy safe door. With an oddly birdlike movement of the head the girl stopped and stared intently at his figure, clearly outlined against the dark folds of the portieres behind him. Then, instead of locking the vault door, she took four swift steps to the heavily carved teakwood table to her right. In another moment she had caught up a Roman lamp of solidly cast bronze and, with all her strength, hurled it at the swaying portiere behind him. "Legar!" was her cry. And at the same moment she uttered a shrill cry of warning. It was time. From behind one of the folds of the portiere she had glimpsed an iron claw at the end of a preternaturally long arm. And as this iron claw was lifted high in the air she cried out as she caught sight of the glint of a naked steel knife blade Her warning was sufficient. Lightly the Laughing Mask leaped to one side. By this time Legar was in the room itself, and as he advanced he drew a revolver from his pocket But the man in the mask was more agile than his enemy. He swung Margery about in a twinkling and whisked her back to the vault, where with one tug of his free hand he swung the vault door open. Legar fired, wprft what baaitiaA tn Mnr upon tnfrf .ttorx j iilaxSHH tives had approached the Laughing Mask, raised his hand to the mask itself and was about to tear it off. But the Laughing Mask stepped backward and with a gesture commandingly stopped him. "One moment, if you please, gentlemen. There is no need for this. My mask stays where it is. As for the crimes which you seem to think are matter for these revolvers I believe this confession of the Iron Claw accounts for the chief of them and, therefore, for the rest." The captain was about to glance at it, but turned to Golden for a word of ita ' JIN- - 3j'CWBLJf'afcTCK3MBSlbfli d e ri'y.-wclyslf- - .9I mia d gaping-mouthe- d up-end- instruction. The next moment there was a crash at the other side of the room. Legar had heard every word from his hiding place behind the antique screen and he knew that this was the most desperate case for his fortunes that had yet befallen As the captain stretched forth his hai.'l. extending the confession to Golden, Legar, with a rush, dashed past him, grasped the confession from his fingers and made for the window. Snatching his cap down over his eyes, he plunged head first through the glass, shattering it to splinters. Legar had flashed across the room like a missile from a catapult. Three of the detectives were knocked from their feet. The others gaped at the shattered window. The captain was the first to recover his wits. He shouted an angry command, one of his men threw up the battered sash and the rest leaped out. Inside the Golden library, the detective who had tried to disclose the identity of the Laughing Mask was again intent upon solving this mystery. That is why be had remained behind. "It's no use, your time's come. Off with the mask, I tell you!" The Laughing Mask looked straight into the beady eyes before him and he saw that their gaze was not of the sort that is open to argument or persuasion. Then he looked steadily on beyond to where Margery stood, behind the detective. Margery understood his glance and interpreted his gesture aright. She deftly slipped the octopus bomb from her handkerchief, in which she had held it clutched tightly within her fingers, ever since she and the Laughing Mask had left the vault As the detective strode forward to peer the more closely at what he expected to see revealed Margery hurled the bomb to the floor. The next moment the room was filled with an impenetrable cloud of black smoke. Completely it enveloped everyone and everything in the library. Gradually the black, sootlike pall rose to the high ceiiing of the library, disclosing Margery, her father and the detective to one another. But the Laughing Mask had vanished. The detective dashed to the door leading to the adjoining reception hall and flung it open. Golden followed and both ran through this spacious chamber and on to the stairs. Margery, still apprehensive for the safety of the man in the yellow mask, ran after the searchers, who were fairly baffled. As soon as all three were clear of the reception hall the Laughing Mask's head emerged from a large ancient Roman vase; swiftly, he climbed from out its great sheltering bowl and stepped noiselessly back to the library. Silently the Laughing Mask lifted the window and climbed over the sill. In another moment he had leaped to the ground below. But he had not reckoned upon the quick discouragement that overtakes that limp arm of the law known as a central office detective. The half dozen of the type, with their chief, who had pursued Legar when their revolvers failed to stop him, had quickly given up SJflHSjBflBBJBJpUH sNuSI Leaped to the Sill. man finished setting the signal the Laughing Mask saw the group of detectives at the head of the street at right angles to the tracks, dashing towards him. In another minute they would reach the car. He slipped his revolver from his coat pocket and ran through the car. With a bound he was upon the front platform and slipped the catch of the door behind him. As the motorman faced about, the Laughing Mask's revolver was thrust into his faca. "Start the cai" now!" cried the Laughing Mask. Instead, the motorman lifted the controller handle from the box and would have struck the Laughing Mask's revolver hand, but the latter stepped back and thrust the motorman off the platform with a terrific shove of his foot The motorman tumbled over in the dust of the roadway and before be could regain his feet the Laughing Mask had the spare controller handle out of the tool box and had started the car at full speed. Leaving the controller box for an instant, he gazed backward. The had stopped a passing automobile and were piling into It The car gained momentum, and soon it careened along the rails, swinging around curves with two wheels in air and ever bettering its speed. Nevertheless, the automobile, now driven by one of the detectives, could not to be outdistanced. It was now scarcely more than a hundred yards behind. The car was approaching another slight upgrade, preparatory to dashing across the highest bridge on the road. As the car struck the level stretch of track at the entrance to the bridge abutment, again its momentum drove it at fresh speed. Now it was gaining on the automobile as the car full of detectives, in its turn, struck the upgrade. A new plan flashed through the Laughing Mask's mind. He looked back to measure the distance between the car and the automobile. The car gave a lurch as it struck the bridge switch-frog- , in another moment it had left the rails and then it hurtled against the guard rail, smashed it and plunged downward. As the car disappeared from the sight of the detectives in the pursuing automobile. Golden gave an involuntary cry. "Drive on over the end of the bridge," commanded Golden, "and let us go down below." cliff-edg- e self-appoint- he-hel- j d They were walking briskly when the captain quickly motioned to his men to hug the wall of the house. Something at the shattered window of the library had caught his attention. It was a man's back. The man was astride the window sill. The captain then recognized the hat of the Laughing Mask. The captain halted his men, who were still some fifty feet from the window. The Laughing Mask straightened up as he reached the ground beneath the window, and, for an instant, again he faced his enemies. But in a flash he turned and darted around the corner of the house. When the captain and his men reached the first house corner they stopped to search the vista down the Already the second house wall. Laughing Mask was around the next corner and it did not dawn on the detectives that the man they were hunting would do anything but make for the hedge as Legar had done. As a fact, Legar was still where he had eluded pursuit. He drew forth the confession that he had sought to the chase. The searchers went down the declivity to the waterside and there lay the wrecked trolley car, smashed to splinters. The detectives scattered along the bank of the river, hunting for some sign of the Laughing Mask, but there was none. "We have hunted all along the shore," reported one of the detectives to the captain, "but there is no sign of the Laughing Mask's body. It must have been carried on down the river and over the falls." For the policemen and Golden, the quest was ended. They drove back to the Golden mansion and then the captain and his men took their leave.

Two addresses to which the House of Representatives listened to very attentively, were those of rney-General Logan and Senator J. P. Porter. After they were through with their speeches and the vlay had passed, many could hardly conceive the reason for their failing to ruffle the tempers of some of the listeners. The nearest approach to a thrill was when Logan boldly declared that the trouble with Kentucky at present is that public officials, from the highest to the lowest, have wasted time for the last quarter of a century trying to beat somebody or put somebody into office During the same time, he said, the legislature had not kept itself separate and apart from the other branches of the state government and had in a measure forgotten the responsibility it owed itself and the people of the Btate. Even that shot did not arouse the members sufficiently to criticize Logan's remarks. It was suggested after adjournment that the experience may be the calm before the storm. Logan urged the adoption of a uniform plan of taxation and a fair assessment of property. Although once the foe of classification of property for taxation, he said, he had studied the question long enough to become converted to it, and now he favored that plan. He did not think $32,000 an extravagant appropriation to run the commission, but thought this sum and may be more would be necessary to put into operation the system proposed by the Tax Commission. A central tax commission, Logan thinks, will take the tax question out of politics, because he does not believe any governor will use it for politics. Logan sustained Speaker Duffy's ruling that the legislature at this session should 'not investigate the expenditure of the money of the state. He was asked if he thought the legislature at this session had the right to adopt a resolution calling pn various state commissions and institutions for reports of expenses. He said that the legislature had been called here for the specific purpose of raising revenue and not to investigate the spending of it. and he doubted if such a resolution would be within the province of the present session. At the conclusion of his address rney-General Logan was asked if he thought a tax commission comprising the State Auditor, State Treasurer and Secretary of State and a tax expert selected by them to solve the tax problems of the state would be sufficient for the present. He replied that he knew of no better qualified men nor more conscientious officials than Auditor Greene, Treasurer Goodpaster and Secretary of State Lewis. He said they were all painstakAttoAttohard-workin- Demonstrations of Patriotism. Resolutions condemning the United States Senators who defeated President Wilson's armed neutrality bill were introduced by Representatives Hobbs and L. Merriwether Smith in the lower body of the Kentucky legislature. They were referred to a committee comprising Representatives Hobbs, Smith and O'Brien to be merged and redrafted, and, if possible, made stronger. Speeches on the resolution were the occasion of clamorous patriotic demonstrations. Party lines were forgotten. Republicans and Democrats alike yelled themselves hoarse when Representative Tom Spurrier, Republican, waved "Old Glory" over Representative Smith, Democrat, while he was making ilis speech. Hobbs' resolution says: "We point with eternal and unspeakable indignation to the conduct of Senator Stone, of Missouri, and feel thai the good people of his state, as well as the people of the entire nation, should demand his immediate resignation or removal from the senate of the United States.

Under a resolution by Representative Roach, State Auditor Greene is required to furnish the house an itemized report showing the amount of salary paid each employe of the state for the last fiscal year. A resolution offered of Representative Harvey, setting out the appropriations made by the state during the fiscal year ending June 30, 1916, and calling on the heads of the various state Institutions and departments for reports showing how the money was expended, was ruled out of order by the chair, which held the hour for resolutions had passed.
